Best Recipes of 2003

Just One Per Month

The very best of Kitchen Parade's recipes from 2003, just one per month. As I update this page two decades later, I remain so proud of this collection, I still make every single one of these recipes all this time later, especially the three soups, Scandinavian Split-Pea Soup and At Last! Black Bean Soup plus my cousin Laura's Healthy Carrot Soup, Kitchen Parade's single-most "useful recipe" from the entire year. In fact, all three soups are "signature" recipes! I hope you love these recipes too!
